Dave Gleason’s Wasted Days mp3
Honky-Tonk Monday?! (wtf, omg, lol, imho, & otm) – Dave Gleason’s Wasted Days
I know this doesn’t have the same nice ring as “Honky-Tonk Friday” but I’ve missed the last few Fridays and I just got Dave Gleason’s Wasted Days new record in the mail and I can’t wait `til Friday to post about it. Dave Gleason is a Californian who has been living large honky-tonk style for a while now. He opens for all the greats when they pass though San Fran and he has a slew of his own fans willing to follow him wherever he goes, especially upstairs at The Fillmore in the Poster Room.
The new record, Just Fall To Pieces, gives a nod and a wink to Dwight Yoakum, Joe Ely, Gene Clark, Buck Owens and Charlie Rich. But with the imitation and perfection of these influences Dave Gleason has also created a record that’s all his own. He inhabits these songs of losers, gamblers and lovers. His band consists of the cream of the crop of West Coast country players/pickers including Mike Theriau (an amazing solo artist in his own right). Guests on the record include Thom Moore (of the Moore Brothers) and Albert Belle. Just Fall To Pieces comes out July 10th but can be pre-ordered now through Miles Of Music here.
